Fall Off The Bone Ribs, High End Bar Food & Ethiopian Eats

You want traditional BBQ Ribs for the 4th, but do not feel like standing over a hot grill, call in your order to Mark's Joint in Homewood. His ribs are so tender, you don't need to put your teeth in or sauce. This was a half slab of ribs and after the taping was over, I finished them cold while driving in traffic and I had no regrets! They're just that good! Don't forget the brisket while you're there! Now, if you want something a little healthier, Mark's Joint has some new additions to his salads like a grilled chicken kabob plate and some fresh fruit. His motto is he's more than bbq as you can get sides like a green leafy salad & jambalaya! When you get your salad, be sure to ask for my fa

Sushi, Curry & Cajun Rice Bowls

There's nothing like some sweet, creamy, flavorful curry with just a little kick. You are always guaranteed to find this every time you order from Masaman Thai Kitchen in Vestavia. After an expansion last year, they now offer noodle bowls and sushi. You can get them fried or raw or curry along with your sushi. It's delicious any day of the week, but they also have a Wednesday $8 special. Cajun Bistro in Centerpoint is another favorite among social media, area customers and guests on the party bus. They're known for their seafood items, but are now offering rice bowls that include buttered grilled catfish or grilled chicken and Conecuh sausage. We all know everything taste great with Conecuh.

Before I actually made it to try some of the spicy bird, one of the culinary students from Wenonah High School where I've mentored in the past told them they need to link up with me! I was excited helped me to eat this delicious chicken on camera. If you love spicy fried chicken with on a level 2 heat index, then Gus's Fried Chicken is for you. It is all fried in the same seasoning so there isn't a choice. It's very flavorful, but the heat slaps the back of your throat. Some of the sides that can wash it down are the cool, sweet cole

Mexican Food & Healthy Cheap Eats

There's nothing like eating some delicious fresh food that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and you feel satisfied after you've eaten it! That's one of the reason I love the food at Urban Cookhouse. My favorite side is the broccoli casserole & dessert if the half baked cookie!!! It taste like the goodness of God! Now when it comes to Mexican food, I've eaten my fair share from truly authentic like someone's kitchen to the traditional restaurants. But I've never ever had a fajita that came with a bbq rib on the plate. That's one of meats you can get from California Baja Grill in Hoover, AL. The owners wanted to mix up the ingredients a bit. Now I must say it was a fall off the bone rib which I l
